• The Ransom Theory Devotional

    Mark 10:35–45

    When we enter this world in Adam, we owe God a great debt for breaking His law. We can by no means ever pay this debt, and it is futile even to try to appease our Father by our good works. But Christ has paid this debt for all who love Him, and He has set us free from the dominion of Satan and his minions. Nothing more needs to be done, and we can rest knowing that we are at peace with God and no longer in debt to Him for violating His law. View Resource

  • Vicarious Substitution Devotional

    Matthew 3:13–17

    Nothing that Jesus did was an accident. He did not need to be baptized for the forgiveness of sins, but He did need to be baptized to keep God’s laws perfectly and to be perfectly identified with His people. Because He fully identified with us and followed His Father completely, we enjoy the benefits of His vicarious substitution. These truths are essential to the gospel message, and we must know them, love them, and proclaim them. View Resource

  • Vicarious Substitution Devotional

    Matthew 3:13–17

    Christ has done for us what we could never do. He has rendered perfect obedience to God in every way. This perfect obedience enabled Him to be a pure lamb, free from every blemish and thus acceptable as the perfect sacrifice. Thank Jesus for doing all that is necessary to bear the wrath that we deserve. View Resource
